his page is dedicated to the pleasures of scooping abroad in that big scary place called "Foreign countries". Fortunately, most scoopers are not of the bigoted Sun reader brigade, so travel abroad is seen as an adventure and a chance to fill the book with strange new beer styles - whilst struggling to read menus in a futile attempt to avoid ordering pickled brains - rather than an excuse to insult the locals, get wrecked on the local cheap swill and buy silly stuffed straw donkeys or other tat produced for drunken English tourists.
I'm very lucky to have visited many of the places featured here, but other scoopers have very kindly filled in for my lack of awareness of some places and submitted their own reports which I include here with all due credit - thanks, and keep them coming! I hope you find these reports useful; if so, all I ask is that you update me with any corrections you may find during your travels to enable me to keep them fresh and up-to-date.
